F21 on lenovo thinkpad

The system seizes if I plug in my external hard drive - mouse is all that I have and nothing will open. If I restart the system with the hard dive connected then i get no mouse visible and have to crash it. Remove external and it starts fine again.

What can I do as i need to access this drive.

Geoff.

Please check the journalctl logs before and after you insert your harddrive. Please edit your question and tell us what you get.

Hi, sorry for th delay in replying. I'm not sure how to use the logs - where to look (as in the different sections - I have journal log open) and what the error report might look like. Thanks
